The third option for MH is Diamonds, keeping Clubs TK98 as the side suit, for exactly the same reasons as this hand from the same event: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=454

I definitely wouldn't play Null

Here it is surely better for MH to choose the 7-card club suit as trumps. The contract is rather safe - only a 4-0 trump break or a 6-0 break in hearts or spades can defeat it - and even if the diamond contract makes schneider (45) the club contract without schneider scores more (48).
